Over the past couple months, the WWE seems to have enacted a new talent initiative, as a number of NXT Wrestling's top stars have been called up to the main roster. It is still extremely early in their respective WWE tenures, but all of them have the potential to be major players for years to come.

The most hyped newcomers have been the three members of The Shield. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns made an instant impact, as they interfered in the main event at Survivor Series by attacking Ryback and putting him through the announce table. They have continued to wreak havoc ever since.

Brad Maddox debuted more anonymously as a referee, but it didn't take long for him to stand out either. During the WWE Championship match between CM Punk and Ryback at Hell in a Cell, Maddox hit Ryback with a low blow and helped Punk retain. Over the past month, he has constantly tried to get a contract as a WWE superstar.

The most recent call-up is current NXT Champion Big E Langston. While the freakish physical specimen has yet to wrestle an official WWE match, he burst onto the scene by taking out John Cena on consecutive nights and has been serving in a bodyguard role for Dolph Ziggler and A.J. Lee.

All five of the WWE's newest superstars have made their presence felt up to this point, and all of them can have a ton of success. With that said, here are my predictions for how each of them will fare moving forward.
